You shouldn't need a driver if you use any standard operating system.

What seems to be the problem?

it's a reconditioned d600 laptop but the cd is showing up as a samsung when in effect its a Dell CD ROM Drive Module Number 6T980-A01

Is the CD drive working ok? If so, just leave things are they are. Chances are the drive was made by samsung anyway.

Hi, what happens when you put a cd in the drive?

  lisa_gedo 14:26 06 Dec 06

just clicks over

So no window of any sort appears on the screen?

Can you boot with a CD? If so, then it is a windows problem.

Try removing the drive via device manager and restart; windows should pick it up.

If not, it could be that the drive has failed.
